Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Have you checked the Wikipedia article on Price Indices?
Some notable price indexes include:
  • Consumer price index
  • Producer price index
  • Personal consumption expenditures price index
And to that one must add at least the GDP Deflator.

So, there are at least four indices one can call "inflation", and for each of them one can ank the methodological question of how it is calculated.
